O.J. Simpson claims there was never any intent to rob anyone. He just wanted to retrieve his personal property and was unaware that a gun had been pointed at anyone

I just got through watching a revolting TV reality show … the O.J. Simpson parole hearing. Instead of asking the hard questions, the four Nevada Parole Commissioners asked him what I would consider sweetheart questions.

Simpson in effect said he was innocent. There was never any intent to rob anyone. He just wanted to retrieve his personal property consisting mostly of family photographs and photographs of him with other celebrities. He claimed he was unaware that a gun had been pointed at anyone and blamed a security guy for his predicament. At most he said he used bad judgement in letting himself be talked into retrieving his personal belongings which he claimed had been stolen from him.

Simpson found religion behind bars, something all inmates do, telling the commissioners he is now a better Christian.

During the hearing he said, “Nobody ever accused me of pulling any weapon on them. I would never ever pull a weapon on anybody.” Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman must be turning over in their graves with that whopper. And all those who watched his murder trial on TV must have fallen out of their chairs when he gave this statement to the parole commissioners.

Simpson also told the commissioners he had never been a violent person. Oh yea! Tell that to Nicole who was often left black and blue after he used her as his personal punching bag during the time they were together. On one call to the police she frantically pleaded for help while Simpson could be heard screaming at her in the background.

In his closing statement, Simpson said, “I will honor what the jury said.” He was obviously referring to the Nevada jury and not to the California jury that said he must pay the Goldman family $33.5 million. None of the four commissioners made any mention of the California judgement.

After a short recess to deliberate a decision the commissioners returned and made a unanimous decision to grant Simpson his parole.

The parole commissioners have yet to set Simpson’s Conditions of Parole. Will they require him to make payments to the Goldmans as I requested of them in an email? I very seriously doubt it. He will be released to a life of luxury in Florida and the Goldmans will continue to suck air.

I’ve sat in on a number of parole hearings and I never heard anyone subjected to a line of sweetheart questions like the ones asked of Simpson. Several times I was on the verge of puking as I watched the hearing on my TV set.

There is no way the Goldman's can touch his retirement.

True, but the parole board could order Simpson to make payments to the Goldmans from his assets which would include income he received from his pensions. It has been reported that he has accumulated around $600,000 from his pensions during his imprisonment

Untouchable funds if they came from his retirement. They grabbed money from his book and seized memorabilia but not money from his retirement. I wish they could.

You're not paying attention. While pensions cannot be attached, the parole board can order Simpson to make payments to the Goldmans based on his ability to pay and it doesn't make any difference where those funds come from.
